Rachel Gibney Assoc. IALD, MIES, LC
Managing Associate Principal: Phoenix Studio

Rachel hails from the great state of Arizona where she began her career as a theatrical lighting designer. An interest in architectural lighting design first led her to an internship at Available Light and she has been climbing the responsibility ladder ever since! Rachel’s talents have been instrumental to the success of many award-winning museum and architectural projects including the El Paso Children’s Museum, new science complexes for Williams College and Skidmore, and new pavilions for the National WWII Museum. Rachel holds a BFA from the University of Arizona abnd and MBA from Southern New Hampshire University; an industry leader, Rachel contributes to Women in Lighting + Design (WILD), and two IES standards committees: Education, Library, Office Lighting and Theater, Film, and Television Lighting. Ms. Gibney is an adjunct faculty member at North Carolina School of the Arts and Studio School of Design teaching Revit/BIM software to Theatrical Design students.

Rachel is passionate about utilizing theatrical design techniques to create memorable moments for both museum and architectural projects. She approaches her work with the belief that “lighting design is the art of storytelling through an audience’s subconscious observations.”
